Modern Dog Care – Memory Foam Dog Beds

Pet care has advanced a lot in recent years, in all areas, including dog beds. Some of the biggest and most valuable advantages have come in memory foam. Once only available to the richer dog owners, memory foam dog beds have now come down a bunch in price. But what is it that makes memory foam beds such a super buy? It’s so much more than the price.

What is memory foam?

Memory foam is visco-elastic polyurethane, which reacts with the heat of the dog’s body to form itself to all the dog’s curves. There is an
assortment of grades in firmness and support available. It is soft and supple and easily molds but then it retains its shape, giving extra support that no other pet mattresses offer. The technology has been used for a while now in human mattresses and so now pet owners are able to give their pet the same benefits.

All shapes and sizes of beds can be made, so regardless the size of your dog and whatever position they like to sleep in, there is a foam dog bed on hand to meet that need. Also, they can be found in a full range of cover designs.

Health benefits

These dog beds are not only soft and comfortable; they offer all the support that any dog could need. Whatsoever the size, weight or age of your dog, this technology allows for the total support of every joint and muscle.

If your dog suffers from joint problems or arthritis, this is a particularly good choice particularly for older dogs suffering from arthritis and other conditions. Vets often recommend orthopedic dog beds made of this foam for dogs that have orthopedic problems, because of the first-rate support they offer. Working dogs also benefit from the support of memory foam dog beds to rest their weary muscles and give them time to repair before the next busy day.

The memory foam takes the pressure off joints and muscles and so can be beneficial in reducing pain for your dog, even if your dog suffers from a condition like hip dysplasia. The spines of large dogs can be allowed to sag and distort when not supported by memory foam technology.

The excellent support that these beds afford also facilitates better blood circulation. With their weight evenly distributed by the foam, your dog has the best chance of a peaceful night’s sleep, especially as they will not be tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable. From our own experience, everyone knows how frustrating that can be when all you want to do is sleep.

Finally, memory foam dog beds are breathable, which means they will keep your dog warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. That is better for their health and also helps them sleep better.

Economic benefits

It used to be considered that these dog beds were relatively expensive. But with the old laws of supply and demand, prices have fallen, making them a fantastic buy. They may cost a little more initially but they are extremely durable, which may be particularly important if you have a large dog or one who chews a lot.

In addition, memory foam dog beds can be machine washed or easily washed by hand. They should last for years, whereas cheaper alternatives surely will not. Some can also be machine dried.

So, whatsoever your budget, it makes sense to look at this type of dog beds. They meet all your pet’s needs; they are available in any style you could wish for, and they will last for years to come.
